Loved and Proud (Stability, Grandparents)

My parents came to her soccer game. She was a bit more ‘clingy’ than usual, my Mom said. I experienced this on the sideline as the Coach and Dad, too, with her often leaning into me for a hug or putting her arm around me when I circled the kids up to coach.

Not surprising as she was headed away for the weekend.

Anyway, we were all very proud of her as she was more aggressive than usual and persisted to get the ball. She was also our most consistent passer. Little by little, this artsy, skipping girl is finding her tiger side out on the soccer field. It’s a real growth experience for her, I think, so I plan to keep coaching if she wants to keep playing.

I remember how good it felt when I knew my grandparents loved me and were proud of me. I’m so glad she is getting that experience on a near-daily basis from my parents.
